Any MIT professors out there for some physics calculations...........?
let's assume you are in a a Top Gun with........it really doesn't matter the HP in this situation......and let's say a launch speed of 60 mph off the crest of a 100ft tall wave (keep in mind, there probably is a 150ft hole behind it)........the question is:
How far and how high would you fly above and beyond the initial 100 footer? ............and...........what are your chances of survival?
